    - More Info
  • Latin Name: Begonia rex Red Tango
  • Common Name: Painted-Leaf Begonia, Fancy-Leaf Begonia, King Begonia
  • Characteristics: The Begonia rex Red Tango is an indoor plant with very intriguing foliage. The shade of pink-red on the leaves seaps upwards, with a cream colour following that before being neatly finished off with a dark green border. These gorgeous shades make the plant hard to ignore from all angles. The King Begonia will make use of its air-purifying qualities by removing harmful pollutants and unwanted toxins from the air, quickly being replaced by a fresh and revitalised atmosphere.
  • Plant Advice: Begonia Rex Red Tango should be placed in partial shade. This should be coupled with the avoidance of any direct sunlight as it will cause harmful leaf damage as time goes on. Watering should be carried out when the soil is dry to touch. This can be continued on a once-a-week basis throughout the year, until the Winter dormant period when these levels should drop to once every two weeks.

Rex Begonias, commonly known as King Begonia, are best known for their striking foliage. This Red Tango variety will show off a gorgeous array of colour that will prove to be very intriguing on the eye. A pink shade will begin at the centre and form its way up into the upper section of each leaf. This will then be bordered by a cream shade and then finished off with a dark green bordering outline. The King Begonia's clustered foliage will allow it to standout in any home, office or other indoor space, with the added benefits of its air-purifying qualities cleaning the air in an efficient manner. Place the plant in partial shade and avoid direct sunlight to maintain healthy leaves. Watering should be a once-a-week process for most of the year, mainly when the soil is dry to touch. This will change, however, in the plants dormant period of Winter when the levels can drop to once every two weeks.
